On Brexit day the UK can decommission their Galileo ground stations in UK territories unilaterally, after all if the EU doesn't want us to be a part of it, then we withdraw. And since we have put a lot of money into it and now they won't let us use it, a full refund (with interest) would be well in order.

And the EU can set up new ground stations relatively easily - they will be happy and eager to get a greater share of the work. There will be no full refund because the contractors will be paid for the work done, according to the contracts signed.
